Having not been to Waterfoot for many years, I booked this house for a wee bit of a break for me and my family after a hectic year. The scenery we enjoyed on the coastal road drive up was breathtaking, Waterfront itself is a small village, the kind of blink and you'll miss it job. The house is located on the "main" (or only street!) and is easy to find, plus the directions the owner provided helped.
The house is charming- it was clean and comfortable. The living room has a couple of sofas and an open fire. There was some coal and sticks provided in case you wanted to light the fire which I thought was a nice touch, but the weather was fabulous and we didn't need it. The dining area is in the sitting room close to the kitchen which made feeding the family a bit easier. The small but sufficient kitchen was well equipped with crockery and the like.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms including one with bunk beds where my kids slept. My husband and I slept in the room next. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage to put our stuff away. One of the major pluses for me having young kids in tow was the large enclosed garden at the back. The kids were are to play out there to their hearts content and I didn't have to worry knowing there were safe. The garden was also handy for BBQs on a couple of the nights.
The location of the house was fantastic- we were only a stone's throw from the beach and it was a handy base for us to explore the glens and all it had to offer. We found the locals to be friendly and helpful.
All in all, I definitely won't leave it years to come back to Waterfoot and we would stay here again. It certainly delivers the ingredients to recharge the batteries and have a lovely family break. It is amazing what's on your doorstep in Northern Ireland.
